    because of other processor-intensive features, we're limiting the diplay to default for now...that may change later but it's unlikely.

    any problems with logon since the password change?

    I gotta admit, I'm not real nuts about the new thing.
    My avatar and all that is gone and i can't access my profile to re-do it. Having trouble posting, and the added features make it more confusing.
    I'll keep trying, and probably get used to it, but right now it's a pain in the backside...

    user CP is what you want, if you're logged on you can access it.

    Can you put the sponsor links (that are on the left hand side of the page) on the bottom of the threads? Other than that, cool!

    can't do it...side columns worked best for us. hope y'all can get used to that.

    i should mention that the side column and the top google ads are still in evaluation stage, maybe a change later, maybe not.

    Thanks for hanging in there guys. Once we get all settled in, this new system will work out much better than the last.

    Are you sure it can't be moved? It's REALLY annoying. On the other message board I visit that is run with the same software, they moved it to the bottom and it's much better.

    doin' better now except for some sort of automatic censoring... it took the word "scrape" and made it say "s****e", and "******e" to say "******e"

    i'm not too happy with our new censoring options....we have to pick words one by one as they appear and go in and fix it...i already fixed "scrape" but i have no idea what that other one is...

    if anyone finds something i should be tweaking, please email me the item...

    dan...the ad plugin we applied is about columns, left or right...but your feedback is important, so please hang in, ok?

    It can be moved. But we are going to test different things and see which way works the best.

    The reason there are a few more ads is I am trying to make the board bigger and better - such as providing a variety of free stickers rather than one size, hopefully placing an order of t-shirts/caps to send out to winners of competitions for free, etc.

    Why is it so annyoing on the left? Are you getting a scrollbar on the bottom of the screen?

    I do have several different configurations that I am going to be testing out. I just need to have each one in place for a week or two to gather a large enough sample.

    Is anyone else really annoyed by the ads on the left?

    Why not move the column of ads to the right?

    Then scrolling with the bar at the bottom is "Optional", many of us never buy over the internet anyway.

    Being on the left, makes scrolling "Mandatory", everydurntime you click a page.

    Just a small adjustment, but the ads could then stay the same size, but be out of the way for the folks just interested in the discussions.

    i've been working with our display settings, and "optimising" for best viewing at 1024 X 768...

    the thumbnails have eliminated any scrolling caused by pics (at the above resolution)...

    please take a while and see if you get used to things? we have a lot to consider as we make these moves, such as any future developments that may call for an official sponsors would be best, imo, if we had a format that allowed for seamless integration.

    again...please give it a bit of time to see if this format is doable?

    We will be trying many things in the next month or so here. Who knows what we will end up with.

    I must say that this board looks waaay better than the last one.

    Agreed but the ads on the side drive me INSANE!! Not sure why...I guess they're just very disracting.

    I feel a little bad now using firefox and adblock. Well, not bad in general, but I feel like I'm not supporting the site. Maybe that makes me feel bad...
